    This small, old Florida style hotel is directly on the beach. The rooms are new and clean and very comfortable. A light breakfast is included. Bikes and kayaks and stand up paddle boards available. It's an easy bike ride to the grocery store or elsewhere.

    My family is planning a trip for the last week in May 28-31 to Sanibel. Is the weather good during that time? I have read that rainy season starts in June. Wondering if the end of May could be rainy too.

    Hi, While we never know what the weather will be, it's been a dry spring. The showers typically move through quickly, so a full day of rain is not likely.

    Hi! Just booked for one night in November as staying in Marco island and we wanted to venture north for a drive and stay. We have booked gulf view suite. As just visiting for a couple of days looking for best recommendations of things to do..we are avid beach, snorkelling and hoping to enjoy all of what the beach offers. Would it be best to buy groceries/liquor before crossing over? Cheers Kelly

    You can get whatever you need on the island. Really not more expensive than Ft Myers.
